in your SALT’N’SUN Surf & Yoga week

you are staying in a 3 or 2 beds room with two shared bathrooms. right in the center of the beautiful village praia da luz , 2 minutes walking distance to the beach.
we will provide you every day with a healthy breakfast and four evenings with typical home made portuguese dinners.
five days of surf lessons in the west or south coast including the surfboard and wetsuit as well as the beach transfer. on your surfing days you will have a healthy lunch snack-pack provided.
for inner peace and to relax the mind we start the day with a awareness-meditation-yoga routine.
after your are back from surfing we will practice a gentle hatha-flow or yin yoga to prevent sore muscles, to keep your body flexible, gain strength and release tension or energy blockages. bear in mind that all yoga classes are under the beautiful sky of the algarve and it might be a little chill in the mornings.
giving your body a rest from surfing we will go for a guided hike in the serra monchique where we explore the village of monchique, the traditional schnaps medronho and the stunning, surrounding nature of pine and eucalyptus woods.
